Athletic Prowess

If you’re an athlete, or someone who enjoys being active, you know you’re always prone to injury. The best line of defense is always in the way of prevention, but often times, no matter how careful we are, we find ourselves dealing with some sort of injury. Today, there are many vitamins and supplements designed to help strengthen us and repair damaged muscles and joints; especially as we age. Get on the right track and discover what nature has to offer to keep you moving in the right direction.

Athletic Nutrients This is a great base product for athletes. It is leading-edge in the way it formulates the vitamins (many are enzyme-activated) and minerals. Added to this is a pH balanced version of creatine, goodly amounts CoQ10 and alpha ketoglutarate – all which help in ATP energy production. And too, there are muscle-strengthening factors like NAC, alpha lipoic acid and l-carnosine and a super-fruit antioxidant blend. My sports patients like what it does for them.

Athletic Pure Pack This is a great product for a number of reasons.  First it is filled with an amazing array of nutrients for the athlete – which we’ll talk about in a moment. Secondly, it puts these in an easy-to-take daily packet. Included in this packet is the Athletic Nutrients listed above, a fat soluble version of Vitamin C, which makes this important connective tissue nutrient more available to where you as an athlete need it. There is a goodly amount of omega 3 fish oils to help in both anti-inflammatory post-workout problems and for general wellness. And importantly for the athlete there is a buffered version of creatine, which not only works against the buildup of lactic acid during exercise and sports events, but also helps in sustained energy, endurance and muscle comfort during these physically challenging sporting moments of your day.

Whey Basics This is a great product for easily bringing high quality protein into your body. This whey is cold-processed and completely made of undenatured proteins. It is not uncommon for many store-bought whey powders to lack the degree of quality control and focus that Pure Encapsulations gives to its products such as this one. What makes whey protein so good for muscle building purposes is that it strong in branched chain amino acids, which the body uses preferentially in building muscle tissue. These proteins help in muscle recovery after intense workouts as well. Its natural vanilla flavor and easy mixing make this a great product for building bulk and keeping your body conditioned.

 

The Healthy Athlete Significant to pushing themselves hard, athletes experience many micro-traumas that occur within the muscle fibers, tendons, ligaments and joint capsules of their bodies.
